Cheaters are dealt with accordingly.

We  Can

Always a crowd favorite, the MelonDerby is back for 2023 and sure to be better than ever.  Start planning now for your winning entry!

Cash prizes for fastest and most creative entries!!!

Yes, we have rules (blah, blah,blah, blah, blah). 

1.  You must use a cantaloupe or small watermelon.

2.  You must use between 1-4 wheels

3.   For once, gravity is your friend, and the only means by which your fruity vehicle may be propelled.  This means no engines/springs/magnets/pushing, etc.  as it advances down the sloped course.

​NEW for 2023:  Your entry  cannot be longer than 2 feet in length to accommodate the launch platform.
